The Impossible Machine
Another June: a practice in
old bad poems
Or break or scour
with newest chess eggs
something sure or scar
as light inter-varies
parceled in its cope
like dry weather

measured prunes

starlight lazy answers
like quiet sparks

shedding sun-dry shoals

then things vary

like quiet light

made less dark

like measures thrown

to dark spawns of daylight

quiet measures thrown

not down night light-night
somehow down

like quiet june
with quick insects

measure-marking dark solace
playtime dark time
pleasure-dark
like ducks at playtime
somehow nighttime

something might rhyme
like dark fallows
something dark-light
might light phorous
something light
like street-light
daylight taking
night-night night
night-nighting
